The influence of a change in the meniscus cross-sectional shape on the medio-lateral translation of the knee joint and meniscal extrusion
Objective The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of a change in the meniscus cross sectional shape on its position and on the biomechanics of a knee joint. Methods One main finite element model of a left knee joint was created on the basis of MRI images. The model consisted of bones, articular cartilages, menisci and ligaments. Eight variants of this model with an increased or decreased meniscus height were then...
Numerical modeling and experimental validation of full-scale segment to support design of novel GFRP footbridge
The paper contains analysis of full-scaled three meters long segment of a novel composite footbridge. Both numerical modeling and experimental validation were performed. Analyzed object is a shell type sandwich channel-like structure made of composite sandwich with GFRP laminates as a skin and PET foam as a core. Several static load schemes were performed including vertical and horizontal forces. In FEM analysis multilayered laminate...
The purpose of the paper is to investigate the abilities of applying Granulated Expanded Glass Aggregate (GEGA) as a natural volume substitute of aggregate as a component of lightweight concrete. The GEGA aggregates used in the experiments were made of confused glass waste. In order to achieve satisfactory strength of concrete Granulated Ash Aggregate (GAA) was added as well. To produce specimens three grain sizes of aggregates...
